Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go on the Ultimate Field Trip?
Join this group of seventh- and eighth-graders on their amazing journey into the Amazonian rain forest. First they paddled canoes down the longest river in the world, the Amazon, and camped in the rain forests of Peru. During their two-week odyssey they met local school children and bartered with the Amazonian Indians. They learned to live in the wilderness, swinging on vines and sipping from coconuts. And most important, they discovered that there are no easy answers to the problems facing the rain forest.
This vivid account, captured in extraordinary photographs, provides remarkable insight into an endangered world that is unfamiliar to many, yet essential to all.

About the Author:

To research her various books and magazine articles, Susan E. Goodman has snowshoed through mountain forests, tried using a blowgun in the Amazon, and scared a moose at rest -- and herself in the bargain. Years ago, she went to U.S. Space Camp as a participant and loved the 1/6 Gravity Chair. Ms. Goodman lives with her family in Boston, Massachusetts.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. This photo-essay records the experiences of seventh-and eighth-grade students from Michigan who traveled to the Peruvian Amazon. There they explored the rain forest canopy and understory, learned about indigenous plant and animal life, visited a town school, traded with a native Amazonian tribe, and began to understand the economic pressures that lead to rain forest devastation and the sometimes complex results of simple actions. When one of the boys buys a sloth in order to return it to the rain forest, his teacher points out that although he may have saved it from becoming someone's dinner, the purchase might encourage the seller to capture other animals "to sell to `softhearted' eco-tourists." Clear, full-color photos focus on the children's experiences as well as on the environment and people they came to know. A different slant on a continually interesting subject. Carolyn Phelan
